Skip to comments.Fast and Furious weapons found in Mexico cartel enforcer's home

High-powered assault weapons illegally purchased under the ATF's Fast and Furious program in Phoenix ended up in a home belonging to the purported top Sinaloa cartel enforcer in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, whose organization was terrorizing that city with the worst violence in the Mexican drug wars.
In all, 100 assault weapons acquired under Fast and Furious were transported 350 miles from Phoenix to El Paso, making that West Texas city a central hub for gun traffickers. Forty of the weapons made it across the border and into the arsenal of Jose Antonio Torres Marrufo, a feared cartel leader in Ciudad Juarez, according to federal court records and trace documents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

All by design.
Remember their attempt at the propaganda for this? It fizzled fast.
It’s difficult to keep up the fraudulence and lies day after day.
Even without criminal convictions, this will play well in campaign ads.
F-Troop (BAFT) once again having a shining moment.
Looks like America better wise up and stop putting democrats in charge of the ATF.
Or anything else.
I don’t think those were purchased at Lone Wolf. Even gullible goobers have standards, ya know?
Thanks Deo volente.
Wow! This guy “escaped” jail. Ok! Wow. Wha a story.
They have been shooting at our DPS helicopters for a while now and a couple of weeks ago a LifeFlight chopper took gunfire too.
WTF in media speak is an “anti-aircraft machine gun”
C’mon: Walter Cronkite progeny media couldn’t get a correct report on a wet-dream.
The United States is ARMING drug cartels.
How much more evidence do we need to REMOVE THIS REGIME FROM POWER?? IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!!!!!!
How many more Americans and Mexicans need to die? Obama is a bloodthirsty bastard and should be in prison for the rest of his life with Eric Holder right there with the treasonous cretin.
If this had happened under Bush, he would have been impeached.
Obama and his gang get away with murder, literally.
Was the ATF cleaned up during the Bush years, only to become become corrupt again in 2009?
Instead, America should demand that the ATF and other unconstitutional agencies be abolished.
Which clearly means the so called 'war on drugs' is a complete joke...The President of the US is aiding Mexican drug cartels in getting illegal drugs into the US to be dispensed to school children, among others by helping them kill whoever it takes to get the drugs into American cities...
It’s good. We are keeping the guns off American streets.
Whatever it takes right? hehe
Not a doubt in my mind that this is treason. These weapons were located because the authorities in Juarez found them, not because our ATF had provided ANY way for these weapons to be tracked before they ended up killing innocent Mexicans and/or Americans. Every time the media reports say that these guns were sold in the hopes of tracking down the drug cartels, they are ignoring the fact that these were not trackable weapons. They are usually only tracked by serial number AFTER they have been found at a murder scene. It was clearly never intended that they be tracked BEFORE they were used to murder innocent victims.
Remember when people were putting the Joker face on Obama? It’s no joke. It’s exactly the truth. What did the Joker do? He got the supposedly-trustworthy people from INSIDE THE GOVERNMENT to deliberately kill innocent civilians to create terror and chaos. That is what our government is doing. If these are military-grade weapons (rocket launchers, anti-missile, etc), then they are militarily arming our enemies and the enemies of Mexico. BAstards. Lawless, treasonous bastards who have the blood of innocent men, women, and children on their hands.
They get a double “benefit”. Not only are they trying to subvert the 2nd amendment in the US, but they are literally driving Mexicans to flee Juarez and other places to save their lives from the barbarous devils who are making Mexico uninhabitable to anybody who values life. Barbarous devils who are armed by our own stinkin’ “top cop”!!
We’ve got lots of Mexicans around here. My kids have good friends who are from Mexico, and almost every one would like to go back to Mexico to live but don’t think they can because the corruption and violence makes the place unliveable. I’ve always thought that if there was a way we could help and empower those people to take back their own country so it could prosper just like America used to prosper, then they could live there happily and we could get rid of the illegal immigration problem. But these a-holes in our government are making sure that the corruption in Mexico will ALWAYS drive illegals to the US, to do the Cloward-Piven thing and enable a communist takeover here.
I am livid. Obama and Holder as well as all the people who aided and abetted them in these treasonous acts of war against the people of US and against Mexico need to be hung disembowelled from a bridge - but only AFTER they have been given due process so it is the full weight of the US justice system, representing we the people, that executes that final act of justice upon them.
Obama and Holder are LITERALLY “The Joker”. America needs to WAKE UP before it is too late.
"Ma Duece" or one of those old soviet 12.7mm guns?
